Lincoln Club of Orange County Proposes "Legalization" Path For Illegal Immigrants: Permanent Serfdom for Mexicans

sign-pilgrims-caution-illegal-immigrants72.jpg
In the most hilariously misguided local effort to get Latinos to vote Republican since Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina downed tequila shots in Newport Beach, the Lincoln Club of Orange County, that august group of rainmakers whose donations make or break candidates and issues, have proposed a way to end illegal immigration in this country.

It's not amnesty, mind you: the Lincoln Club wants a permanent pool of low-wage workers that can never, ever become citizens. Live and work in this country? Sure! But become citizens so they can all vote Loretta? Nope.

Hear that? That's the sound of one million laughing Latinos in la naranja.

You can read their lack of thinking here. Essentially, the Lincoln Club wants to bring back the bracero program, the exploitative agreement between the United States and Mexican governments that ran from the 1940s until a nationwide outcry over working and living conditions forced the governments to end the system in the 1960s. What's laughable, though, is that at least during the bracero program, the workers were forced to go back to Mexico for a season or so and didn't have to pay taxes--you know, because they were guest workers. Not only does the Lincoln Club want all those illegals to stay and pay taxes, they want them to stay in that sub-class for good! Nothing like cheap labor to landscape your Newport Coast homes, eh, pendejos?

I don't see any suggestions of amnesty for those illegals already here, in the Lincoln Club proposal so that goes a long way in resolving my concerns.  Frankly, the three point they made; sealing the border, guest worker program and making sure employers are not hiring ilegals all make sense.  Any way you slice the loaf folks, the kind of Americans it would take to do the back breaking work in the fields, at the car washes and other tough manual labor positions are nonexistent.  The only way you could even get a few of those positions filed by Americans is to cut off welfare and force those recipients to do the jobs.  A strong and well managed Guest Worker Program would solve a lot of issues.  Such a program could even be designed as an expedited path to legal citizenship in the United States.  Too bad one or more of the Republican Presidential candidates haven't already thought of and adomted such a plan.

It’s morally correct to lookafter our own suffering people first, as we have no obligation to foreigners,no matter their motherland? We have thousands of homeless veterans, left towander in our streets; even single mothers with children, the sick andunwanted. We have our own share of poverty, without being responsible to peoplewho have already scorned our laws. If Pro-illegal immigrant activists thinkthey can intimidate pro-sovereignty entities, as akin to the Dept of IN-Justiceis performing the same restraints against Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Indianaand South Carolina—they are poorly mistaken—as there is a building strengtheningmajority of every walk of life, every American, called the TEA PARTY.

 

Most Americans respect people whofollow the law, but just appearing and asking for handouts—forget it. Even thehighest of skilled occupations, must be vetted through FBI, physical andprevious employment examinations, sometimes waiting years. Those who illegalcross borders, fly in and overstay have no reverence for our countries people.What is happening right now and adding to our own unemployed is people escapingpoverty, the drug dealers and criminals.  

 

In the Austin Daily Heraldreports: "There are rumors people are losing their jobs at local plants aswell, due to increased hiring scrutiny amid federal immigration programs.Displaced workers who fear being fired and/or deported are going to Arcadia,Wis., to work for the Ashley Furniture plant or to Postville, Iowa, or St.Joseph, Mo., to work at other meat processing plants." Companies that havealready violated ICE audits and prosecuted, have seen a large increase ofregular Americans and lawful residents, lining-up for jobs—as illegal workersrun off.

 

Out of work Americans and patrioticcitizens and residents can speed up this exodus, by promoting the E-Verifymandatory enforcement program, especially if President Obama signs a newdirective for a job program in ‘Construction.’ These jobs should be goingdirectly to unemployed workers in these particular occupations. Those notworking and want a job should get into action and phone 202-224-3121. This is the Washington switchboard that can direct you toall House Representatives responsible for moving Chairman Lamar Smith's‘Legal Workforce Act’ (bill H.R.2885)to the house floor. Especially confront the new members sentto Congress by the TEA PARTY. Additionally, you can learn more about theillegal alien occupation, which permeated every community from Vermont toArizona by going to NumbersUSA web site. Judge for yourself the truth, insteadof reading the craftily engineered vitriol propaganda from the two parties.

 

 Become a TEA PARTY member and see what you cando to halt this economic mess, with billions of dollars annually going as freepublic assistance, to illegal aliens who break our laws. The TEA PARTY willenforce our immigration laws and construct the fence(s) as originally enactedin 2006.  Thousands of Hispanics havejoined the TEA PARTY, whose families go back generations. Only the householdsthat have something to hide are moving towards the Obama administration. People,who respect the laws of the land, have no commitment to illegal immigration andare adamantly opposed to even their own race, color, faith if they broke thelaw.

THERE WILL NEVER BEANY CHANGE IN CONGRESS, LAWS, AND POLICIES IF THE SAME MIXTURE OF LIBERALS,DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS HAS THE EMPOWERMENT TO RULE US. WE CAN ALTER THISWRONG DIRECTION OF OUR ECONOMICALLY CRIPPLED SOVEREIGN LAND, BY VOTING MORE TEAPARTY LEADERS IN THE SENATE AND HOUSE. ALL AGENCIES OF THE GOVERNMENT NOTPROSCRIBED IN THE CONSTITUTION WILL BE LIQUIDATED, MERGED, PURGED OR RETURNEDTO THE CONTROL OF STATE GOVERNMENTS.

 

Smith's Legal Workforce Act (H.R.2885)would require 100% of companies—large and small-- to use E-Verify for all newhires within 2 years. This bill would also require all federal, state, andlocal agencies as well as federal and state contractors/ sub-contractors andcritical infrastructure sites to use E-Verify within 6 months. Increaseemployer penalties and fines for knowingly hiring illegal alien workers.Require the Social Security Administration to send no-match letters toemployers if a current employee's name and social security number don't matchin their system. Require the Social Security Administration to notify owners ofa Social Security number if their number is used multiple times.

 

The old lethargic propaganda from the Left side of the aisle, thatAmericans will not do dirty jobs—is a big fallacy—it’s about good wages andbenefits. Young men are rushing to North Dakota for drilling operations in anoil bonanza, because they are earning a 100 grand annually. They have created30.000 jobs and people can get some of the action. It’s cold and dirty work,but nobody is complaining.  

 

Remember Liberals, Democrats and Republicans will concoct any rhetoric,to dislodge any candidates, other than their own chosen favorite. Democratswill manipulate voting using such unpalatable organizations, as ACORN. Theactivists that run this group, is re-organizing under a different name in NewYork. Previously they were hiring persons of ill-repute, to register anybodywho could sign their name—non-citizens and illegal aliens. Most American stateshave poor laws respecting the citizens right to vote and Arizona is noexception. With overwhelming numbers of illegal aliens in occupancy, the StateSenator who was recalled could have been compromised. Having only to show twopieces of personal ID, such as a utility or water bill, could be manufacturedon any computer. With the hasty arrival of the 2012 election, state voters mustdemand a picture ID, with proof-positive that the owner is a US citizen. 

 

The name of the game from both sides is money and power. More votes forthe Liberal Progressives, hidden away under the Democratic veil.  Elitist Republicans like the way things onthe beltway, as they have always been. Both parties will reclaim the ‘Pork’ andthe special interests with the money bundler’s and the never ending stream offinancial engineers from ‘K’ Street lobbyists. Only the TEA PARTY establishedas a majority in the Senate or House can return America to it principlefoundations as written into law by our founding fathers.

The Lincoln Club's idea is politically unsustainable, unoriginal, and without a snowballs chance in hell of succeeding.

Fair? Nope. Designed to keep immigrants in subjugation? Yeah, probably. Designed to exploit the immigrant population for the benefit of los ricos?  No doubt.  But as one who works almost daily with the undocumented here in sandland (AZ), I think there would be many of the undocumented population who would say, bring it on. They are tired of hiding in the shadows and worrying that they will not have enough to bond out if la migra takes them, or their mother, father, etc. Not a good resolution, but maybe a step toward some lower level of sanity.

"the bracero program, the exploitative agreement between the United States and Mexican governments..."

Aside from the 'exploitative bracero' part (no one held a gun to braceros heads)  I agree with Klavito. These establishment Republicans are real POS's, complaining about taxes and Democrats and then hiring lawn guys are going to carwashero places. Hint, guys, that dude waving the leaf blower around for 10 minutes has a wife at home who is *less* likely than yours to be working. She and her kids are consuming *way* more taxes than the family can pay on the under-the-table wages you pay them. That's why, despite our sales tax being 25% higher than 2 decades ago, the state is still broke. If you are paying  an illegal lawn guy or carwashero or 'nanny', you have no reason to complain.

Considering the good ol boys at the Lincoln Club, I would suggest that their philosophy doesn't extend as far as trying to cultivate votes for the Republican Party.  My opinion is that it is strictly a financial, dollars in the pocket motivation.  They and their friends are up to their ears in business interests which exploit cheap illegal labor.  Frankly, they don't want to give that up.  I do agree with them on the Guest Worker Program, which needs to be brought back and expanded.  Keep in mind that these are the same Republicans who have propped up the Agranistas at the Great Park, looking the other way to the gross mismanagement and corruption, solely for the purpose of feeding at the trough themselves.  It is people like this who have helped destroy the Republican Party in Orange County.

From guys looking for work picking apples to middle class people holding benefit carwashes to raise money to SWPL folks going out to 'u-pick' orchards or 'adopting' fruit trees, to youngish middleaged construction workers idled due both to economic conditions and to competition from immigrant labor (and their ethnic networking), I think you vastly underestimate the willingness of Americans to work. Take the In-n-Out test -- go to a restaurant and their staff will be all Americans and reflect the neighborhood. The McD's nearby will be all Mexican. Why?

OK, so here's my problem with your statement.

Alabama (¡a la chingada con el gobierno alabamano!) passed a strict immigration law, some of which has actually been upheld by the circuit court (side note: I look forward to proving I'm not an illegal Swiss when I tell my daughter in French to be quiet during a traffic stop outside of Birmingham).

The undocumented and even some of the documented, green-carded immigrants have fled—self-deporting as someone else said upthread.

Alabama also has shockingly high unemployment.

So the unemployment numbers have gone down, right? Americans are taking the jobs that, as you so eloquently stated, were "stolen by these third world parasites," right?

Wrong. Crops are rotting in the fields. Factories can't keep quotas up. Constructions sites have gone dormant for lack of people who know how to swing a hammer. If these "Americans" are so desperate for jobs, why don't they take the ones that are there? Walk up to a farmer and say, hey, I'll pick wheat or corn or cotton or tobacco, and get to work? It's been months now, plenty of time.

Considering it would have to be accomplished by the inmates running the asylum (Congress) you are probably right about it not being achieveable.  Let a State try to implement such a plan though and the Justice Department would be all over them like a tumble bug on a pile of brown stufff.  Immagration is just another spoke in the "wheel of failure" by our government.  Nothing will change until voters get totally fed up with and fire most of Congress.

'I do agree with them on the Guest Worker Program, which needs to be brought back and expanded. "

Why? I don't know if you've noticed, but we've had 9 percent unemployment for, what 3 years now? Need Mexicans to pick crops? No, only 3% of illegals work in agriculture, and there already *is* an unlimited guest worker program for ag labor, if growers could be bothered to fill in a few forms, pay decently, and provide decent working conditions.

How about stop demanding and consuming the goods and services produced by illegal aliens and/or increase the number of immigration visas for the workers that come/stay here illegally to produce the goods and services that you demand and consume.

That first link is so important I am going to post the content here.

From the Everett Washington Herald, a letter to the editor

Fruit-picking jobs not so plentifulIn response to the letters "Ag jobs show guest workers needed" and "How many willing to pick fruit?":After reading the article about pickers needed in "Northwest Briefly" on Oct. 17, I decided to drive over to Wenatchee to see about picking apples. I am an unemployed carpenter so hard physical labor is not new to me. I also knew that making $150 a day was not likely. That is what the top pickers make and I am far from a top picker. I had a place to stay over there and figured if I could make at least $80 a day it would be worth my while. There was no contact information in the article so off I drove. I got a number to contact at a convenience store in Cashmere. They had taken down an advertisement Sunday and I was the second person to ask about picking Monday. The number they gave me was for Wenatchee Work Source. They needed pickers. They asked me if I had any experience. I told them I had picked on weekends in college 30 years ago. They told me they wanted pickers with at least a season of experience. (Three months.) They couldn't help me.I drove back to Dryden to NW Wholesale Inc. They packed pears but gave me numbers to contact.•Blue Star: I called and they told me they were pretty much done.Stimilt: They also told me they were pretty much done. But gave me a number toStimilt East Unit: I got an answering machine and left a message.I then drove from Dryden to Wenatchee on all the back roads looking for any "pickers needed" signs. I saw none. I called Stimilt again at 4:30 p.m. and got an answering machine and left a message. It is now Wednesday and I am here in Mountlake Terrace still waiting for a return call.I am a U.S. born Anglo American willing and able to climb those ladders and pick that fruit.I did not get the chance.Daniel E.

"Crops are rotting in the fields. "Read this -- anecdotal yes, but so are just about all 'CRITF" stories which feature whining growers.

"Constructions sites have gone dormant for lack of people who know how to swing a hammer."

That's funny, I thought that construction sites have gone dormant because of the bursting of the housing bubble. I'm pretty dialed into construction due to my extended family. There are a lot of guys idled, a lot who are working very sporadically, and the wages have been crushed (foremen, guys with 10-15 years experience and a lot on the ball, are getting $25 per hour, just like Whitman's ex-maid). 

"I'll pick wheat or corn or cotton or tobacco,"

Granted, 'backy is somewhat labor intensive, but hardly back breaking work. But the rest, you are just making stuff up. See, for example

2011 Wheat Harvest, better than expected. Notice the giant machinery. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Ironically, it is the efficiency (read mechanization) of American agricultural which is partially responsible for the last two decades of Mex-influx, as 'our' corn and wheat, coupled with NAFTA, wiped out the small scale and ejido corn farmers in out neighbor to the south.

What is stupid about following the rule of law? Cowardly? How so?

 The right thing to do would be for all the illegals to self deport but we all know that will never happen. They would rather sneak in, bitch and moan every day about how unfair life is here and march and protest screaming at the top of their lungs they deserve to be legal citizens. So we should just give up, shrug our shoulders and say to hell with it just give them blanket amnesty? Not a chance.

Send them all home.

Why do you think they would pay thousands of dollars, leave their homes (you can bet they love their homes as much as you, at least), brave coyotes, drug gangs, horrific conditions crossing our deserts, ad nauseum, all for $1.75 an hour?  Because their prospects were so good in Mexico?

I don't *demand* any of them. Unfortunately to live in SoCal is to have to deal somewhat with illegals, the saturation is so great.  However, I seem to remember houses being built, cars being washed, kids being raised, before the huge Mexican influx of the last two decades. As it is, I wash my own car, tend my own plants, clean my own  toilet, and limit my fast food intake mostly to In-n-Out.

To add, until about 5 years ago there has been virtually no chance of deportation once in the country. That is changing, and so is changing the costs calculations of would-be illegal immigrants.

Mexico is a middle income country by global standards. However, Mexicans and others can make more money here (and few if any are making $1.75 an hour -- Whitman's illegal 'housekeeper' was getting $25/hr, for example). Paying a 'coyote' is an investment.

Dave, Dave, Dave,

Labor costs are about 10% of final produce costs you pay at the grocer store. If you do the math, wages could triple and your $1.00 lettuce would become $1.20. Significant, yes, but we'd benefit in other ways (less spent on propping up poverty in the imperial valley, for example).

At any rate, a whopping 3% of illegals work in ag. It really isn't an issue in this debate, except as a distraction.
